Monday's later match pits Neymar and a Brazil lineup that seems to be finding its form against a mercurial Mexico squad that knocked off Germany and South Korea but got hammered by Sweden.

"We made our way to the top over a period of 14 years - we were the most consistent team in the world for the past 10 years and became world champions".

South Korea shocked the football world by defeating Germany 2-0 at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation earlier this week, but Son Heung-min, South Korea's star forward, insisted on Friday he and the rest of the team won't stay content.

"Throughout the 88-year history of the World Cup, Germany had always been a hero", the daily said.

I wonder how many coaches got together with their students in order to assist them to develop greater understanding and the objective of hard work which results in success at any level? To do this they had to beat the South Korean team, which was originally considered an outsider of the group having suffered two defeats earlier.

The defending champions were sent packing after just one win from their three Group E games, as Sweden and Mexico qualifying for the knockout stages instead.

Germany boss Low, meanwhile, admits Ozil was one of a number of his players that under-performed in Russian Federation.

"We believe there will be a transition that will take place after the World Cup, regardless of the outcome of the tournament, and no one is better equipped to handle that than Jogi Low", said German F.A. President Reinhard Grindel, per ESPN. 'In 2014 and 2017 that was also the case, it happens.

"Our team in this match was missing the ease of play and the classiness we normally display".

"Whether Low is still the right person to manage this team, I can not say".

'I didn't think Thomas Muller had been that convincing in the first two matches and I wanted to make a point there.

"We hereby ask #FIFA to make the next #WorldCup open only to ten teams", the tweet read.
